GAMEDAY: Rd 01 vs Fremantle

Basically that we have gone nowhere over the last 3 years and that our coaching team is now almost dysfunctional with Yze and Williams in the wing. Bartlett wasn't spared either. Inability to sign Oliver etc

Nothing that most of us haven't been saying for a year or two... bottom line Goodwin disappoints

Fair enough that we haven't done anything for 2 years, but how the hell could they say out coaching group is dysfunctional when we haven't even played a game yet?!

Just won an auction and bought a house. Melbourne are winning. This is the best day of my life!!!

Back on the hallowed turf of the MCG before a crowd of the Demon faithful for the first time in ages.  Time to revive the spirit of 2018 and move forward from there. Go Dees!!!

So excited I can’t sleep. Cannot wait to sit down in the MCC with my Dad and two brothers for the first time since 2019. Just quietly, really looking forward to a few frothies while seated i

Yze and Williams are a message for Goodwin... In that sense the group is not cohesive

No CEO would put up with it which shows how tenuous Goodwin's position is.

Anyway as you say early days and he may surprise

I still can’t work out why they didn’t change our game to a 1.10pm start and play the other game here this evening? Would have allowed plenty of time in between to quick clean/prep

MCC has very strict and firm ground management guidelines i believe. two games in one day can impact turf quality.

Cant play Jetta and Jones in the same team together but I prefer Jetta to Jones. Jones offers nothing other than being a witches hat to shuffle around and cannot play out a full game. He will be subbed out or will keep the bench warm for the last quarter. It’s astounding that he still gets a game when he should have retired gracefully two seasons ago.

Jones still offers offensive ball use and drive.

I'm harsh here but Jetts actually offers nothing anything. Incredibly slow, and lose one on one contests far too easily.

Actually gobsmacked Jetta is playing today.

Disappointing crowd so far, where are all the Dees supporters??? Only expecting 24,000 today, I would have thought a lot more. 

Was just thinking that, 25mins before the bounce and there seems to be only about 5k here now!

They might be a message but no CEO would get them in if they were going to make the group dysfunctional. They were brought in to give the team the tools they need. If it then goes pear shaped, well fair enough. But it would make no sense to bring them in to mess up the coaches group or else they might as well have sacked Goodwin last year

For Jetta or Jones?

I'm disappointed Lockhart is injured. He'd be playing today instead of Jetta.

Better than the ghastly empty stands with fake  crowd noise.  Be grateful!

I’m assuming there’s going to be a mass arrival of supporters in the next 20 minutes as there’d be lucky to be 10,000 people at 1:25pm.

I used the term CEO in the business sense. Goodwin is the CEO of football and therefore the most powerful person int he club. 

Pert is an administrator

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
